Some of the 20,000 people who lost their homes in New York and New Jersey because of the Hurricane Sandy are being relocated to several of the Maryville Academy campuses in Illinois.
In an effort to raise money for these evacuees, the Laugh Factory is hosting an indie rock and comedy fundraiser featuring comedian Sara Benincasa and Dylan McDonald and the Avians.
All of the proceeds from this event will go towards the costs of running the temporary program. Tickets are $25.00 and can be purchased through the Laugh Factory website here.
The first group of evacuees arrives in Chicago on December 28th, and they will be present at the fundraiser, Laugh Factory says.
